I cannot tell you how sick I've been. What started out as a bad case of bronchitis went WAAAAAY downhill. I ended up with sinusitis and a double ear infection. I had a raging fever and I couldn't even care for my children. It's been awful! I haven't picked up a crochet hook in more than a week...and that's really saying something. I mean, I even crocheted a little hat for my baby while I was in labor. So you know this illness knocked me on my arse.
Sorry to all who have posted very nice comments. I am not ignoring you; I've just been too sick to reply. But I am working on it right now! :)
And...I have a kinda kick-ass idea for a new pattern (crochet jewelry!) that I may be sharing soon. My mom's birthday is in a couple of weeks, so I want to make her something different. As soon as I get my ideas and materials set, I will share my triumph (or failure, but I am trying to be positive here). :)
Wish me luck!
